The British Touring Car Championship has today (June 30) officially announced its calendar for the 2022 season.
Comprising of 30 races across ten events at eight of the UK’s top circuits, the 2022 campaign is set to be significant one for Britain’s premier motorsport series as Hybrid technology is fully introduced.
Donington Park plays host to the season-opener in late April before visits to Brands Hatch Indy, Thruxton, Oulton Park and Croft occupy dates during May and June before the annual summer break.
The annual visit north of the border to Knockhill will kick off the second half of the season before the series then travels to Snetterton. A second visit to Thruxton follows that before the penultimate weekend at Silverstone in late September and the finale on the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in early October.
In addition to the all-important race dates, the BTCC is also planning to host three official pre-season test days at various venues to allow as much time as practical for teams to carry out Hybrid testing.
BTCC Chief Executive, Alan Gow, said: “I’m pleased to confirm our calendar for the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship. As the biggest series in the UK, it is vital that our schedule is issued so early, to allow the rest of British motorsport to plan their respective calendars.”
